Providing a "hand-up, not a hand-out"

About Strive 2 Thrive

Strive2Thrive (S2T) is Albany's vision to empower families to overcome poverty and become productive and inclusive community members.

The premise of S2T focuses on using every available resource to move Dougherty County families into self-sufficiency through coaching and correlative training that aligns with the labor needs of our region.

This unique process focuses on providing access to social capital, purposeful networking, and dedicated "coaches" (who are middle and upper class community members who have a vested interest in helping families receive ongoing support and direction) in order to attain self-sufficiency, productivity and success.
